In a timely manifesto for talent, Michael John will talk about how to
move beyond working as an employee, and embrace life as a free agent
game developer. The talk will discuss the substantial challenges facing
both individuals and industry, and the potential benefits for both. A
follow-on to his controversial speech at the 2007 DICE conference, John
will describe steps both great and small for talent to embrace the
opportunity to guide their own creative destinies, and will address
directly the hot-button issue of industry unionization.
Ample time for a spirited Q&A session will be allotted at the end.
